I'm driving Aya to Bulaksumur, Jogja, this morning, taking her to inauguration day for Gadjah Mada University (UGM) new students. She joined with 8000+ other new students at Grha Sabha Pramana field (GSP), right in the center of campus for the first day of Pelatihan Pembelajar Sukses Mahasiswa Baru UGM (orientation training)
It is one of the biggest inauguration in the country, as UGM is known as the oldest and biggest university in Indonesia. How proud I am to see my daughter, wearing UGM jacket and soon will share the same campus as I used to have 25 years ago.
Good luck Mbak Aya! Spread your wings!
Here are some pictures I took in the morning:
